In The Press: Money Magazine Article on Ways to Find Affordable Psychotherapy

As quoted in Money magazine,

In an urban area, you may be able to find postgraduate training programs in psychoanalysis or cognitive behavioral therapy for experienced psychologists, says Geoffrey Steinberg, a licensed psychologist in New York City. (Google “training clinic” and the specialty you’re looking for.)

Another option: Ask your therapist if your condition might benefit from group therapy led by an experienced psychologist, which can be 50% less expensive than one-on-one sessions. Says Steinberg, “Group is so underrated and can be so valuable.”

I just noticed TherapySafetyNet was included in Frommer's NYC Free & Dirt Cheap, 5th Edition (2013) by Ethan Wolff. I founded TherapySafetyNet in 2007 to address the needs of uninsured New Yorkers. While we are currently winding down our operations because our mission has been fulfilled by the passage of the Affordable Care Act, I'm so pleased to see TherapySafetyNet receive this kind of attention in print, and hope that our presence in Frommer's will help uninsured New Yorkers find affordable care--whether by way of TherapySafetyNet through the end of 2013, or the New York State of Health thereafter.
